New Stags book on sale

17 September 2012

As a club, we may currently be languishing in the BSBP after losing our Football League status, but our current position does not tell the full tale of this proud club.

Everyone, of course, remembers Stags' famous Wembley penalty shoot-out win over Bristol City to lift the Freight Rover Trophy back in 1987 - arguably the most famous day in the Field Mill Club's long history.

But there have been many other matches worth remembering. And in his new book, Mansfield Town's Most Memorable Matches, Chad sports reporter Stephen Thirkill (pictured) takes a nostalgic trip to memory lane to remember 25 of the club's most memorable games.

Stephen Thirkill has trawled through the Chad archives to capture the tears and pain and the joy and passion of some of the club's most unforgettable games in the words of the men who played in the matches and the fans who were there.

Starting way back in 1932 with the 9-2 win over Rotherham United, Mansfield Town's Most Memorable Matches charts the epic promotion and relegation battles and cup giantkilling acts of the 1960's and 1970's to finish with the sad day when defeat by Rotherham in 2008 condemned Stags to Football League relegation.

This fascinating book, which is packed with nostalgic match action pictures, is a must-read for Stags fans young and old, and is on sale for £10 from our club shop and online @
